Tune Up Your Skin with the Hollywood Peel
A friend who has sons in the Atlanta film industry tells us quietly that movie stars don’t look as good in-person as they do on-screen. They look better. Lots better. The notoriously unforgiving movie camera, and the big screen, have become even harder to get along with in the digital age. 5K video projection is becoming common, and some are looking for ways to make 12K work.
The result? The stars you think are gorgeous are actually breathtaking. The bar for beauty is even higher than it was in Hollywood’s “golden age,” because the cameras are better. They miss absolutely nothing, and tolerate nothing less than perfection.
In this uncompromising workplace, Hollywood stars make it their business to master every advantage. Lately, for many, that includes the Carbon Spectra Peel, better known as the Hollywood Peel. It is a gentle, no-downtime office procedure that evens skin tone and smooths texture. Fine lines, scars, and pigment clusters disappear, refreshing the skin and leaving it younger-looking. It’s safe for most skin types, and imparts long-lasting results.
How it Works in Hollywood and Now for You
Even the best-cared-for skin accumulates an outer layer of dead cells. Sun exposure can cluster pigment in unwanted “age spot” concentrations, and the natural decline in the skin’s production of elastin and collagen causes laxity, wrinkles, and sags. The Hollywood Peel goes to work on all of these issues.
First, a layer of special, carbon-based lotion is applied to the skin, looking and feeling like a soothing mud mask. Then, a gentle, precision laser instrument is guided over the surface of your skin. As the instrument moves over your skin, it removes the lotion mask, and with it, a fine layer of outer skin cells, revealing the fresh, vital new surface below them. The long wavelength of light energy travels deep into the dermal layers, where carefully controlled laser energy creates warmth in the dermis, causing the skin to contract, and reactivates the skin’s fibroblasts, stimulating collagen production. The same light energy breaks down melanin, the pigmentation in cells, so the body can remove it and balance tone naturally.
People say the treatment tingles and most encounter no discomfort. In fact, it is so gentle that some seek its benefits on a monthly basis. The treatment takes about 20 minutes or so, and people return to their normal activities immediately. One patient wrote that she felt confident in going out to dinner with no makeup, right after her session. Results continue building to full flower about three days after the treatment.
